Best answer
Right choice is (c) Mendel’s law of Independent Assortment

The explanation is: There are three Mendel’s laws n Heredity. 1. The Mendel’s law of Dominance states that when a dominant individual is crossed with a recessive individual, the F1 generation offspring will exhibit the dominant trait. 2. According to Mendel’s law of Segregation, a pair of allele governing a single trait segregates from each other during the formation of gametes. 3. According to Mendel’s law of Independent Assortment, the segregation of alleles on one trait did not have any effect on the segregation of alleles on a different trait.
